    I'm not very good at it,

    but it's still good fun and it relaxes me. One day I'll be good at it. I hope.

    A friend's 7 year old daughter taught me how to

    play chess! And then I taught my own teenager how to play. I rarely won against my pint-size teacher, and now my son takes me to the cleaners as well. Kids are brutal sometimes, haha! I start every game with the statement "Ok, no more chances for you!" But we both know I'm...

    Something to Do With It Being a Man's Game

    I play chess, love it, and although definiely not a master, I am quite well at it. I guess its the general view that "chess is a man's game, man obviously being the more intelligent geder" that had driven me to it in he first place. The love grew in years. I am more of...

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    A Long History

    I have been playing chess for about 19 years now. I have played online, played with real life friends, taught some how to play, been in a chess club, and was even in a few Junior Level tournaments when I was younger. My best finish in one of these tournaments was third in a...

    Started Playing..

    A few years ago I got sober and started hanging out with someone who knew how to play chess. The only thing I knew was where the pieces moved. So I started playing chess with this person and now I love playing on my own. I have an account on chess.com and I still play with my...

    I'm Addicted To Chessmaster

    There is this game for the PC called Chessmaster, and I can't stop playing it. I got it from a bargin rack in a shopping superstore, I forget which store. It includes a huge amount of tournement-level tutorials, of which I've barely scratched the surface, and a really good...

    Alexander Alekhine is supposed to have said

    that you should cultivate the most intense and supercilious contempt imaginable for your opponent in chess. I'm not sure such an attitude is conducive to the most effective play, but it does afford an undeniable, if morbid and decadent, form of pleasure when you happen to be...

    I'm no master, and unlikely ever to win any big

    tournaments, but I have always enjoyed a decent game of chess. When I need to relax and unwind, and just can't be bothered to read, and can't get into anything else, or if I'm feeling stressed about anything, a good game of chess relaxes me and calms my mind like nothing else...

    It's been years since I've played,

    but I enjoyed the game. I learned it when I was a kid, in some school program (GATE) that I don't remember much except that we played chess. One kid was really good at it. We all thought he'd win some tournament we participated in, but he came in 16th. Anyway, I would play it...

    A Chequered Past

    I've always had a strange fascination with Chess. For as long as I can remember, the board has held a strangely enigmatic appeal to me. I remember feeling so envious of the people who had a seemingly natural talent for the game, because despite my intrigue I was totally lacking...
